Edward G. Taylor, age 87, died on July 19, 2019, under Hospice care in Conneaut OH. He was born on September 16, 1931 at his childhood home in Conneaut, the son of Fay and Mary (Mackey) Taylor. A lifelong Conneaut resident, Ed attended Rowe High School and then went on to serve for the U.S. Army during the Korean War in Germany. Ed returned home on the Queen Mary in November 1953 and married Lenore Muchiarone in 1955. They were married 45 years before she passed away in October 1999. He worked as a commercial fisherman and then at General Electric, Conneaut Base Plant where he retired after 20 years, in 1993.
Ed was a member of Corpus Christi Parish, and a member of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 151, Conneaut. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and riding his ATV. He was an avid fan of the Cleveland Indians, Browns and Cavs. His best friend was his dog Bo. He checked out the lake (Lake Erie) every day. His many fishing trips were with his son Eddie and grandson Cory on the Taylormaid and on the Flying Duck with brother-in-law Dr. "Duke" Anthony, along with his wife Eleanor "Gin" and their son Dr. "Donnie" Anthony. He was a devoted father, grandfather and great grandfather following all his family's activities and sporting events. He loved his childhood homestead at Turkey Creek and hiked there during the years with his brother Bill Taylor where they shot their guns. He was proud that he was a marksman in the service. He liked to tinker with old cars and listen to country music. He enjoyed traveling to area casinos with his friend Nancy Ebersole, and neighbors George and the late Dot Hlifka.

I knew & worked with Ed for years at the Conneaut G.E. plant. He was a very good friend & taught me many things through-out the years & we became very good friends. I even had the chance to go fishing with him on a big steel fishing boat that was called "Karen" which belonged to Eugene Mackey. We had alot of fishing parties on that boat & we may not have caught that many fish sometimes but we always had a great time out on that boat!!! I always would run into him around town & he always had plenty to fill me in on & ask me about to! I will miss him as will many others but I will never forget him. To his family, I say, I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope you all will feel th...e strength from others who knew Ed & cared about him & that all that strength will help all of you to get through such a terrible time. Sincerely and God Bless You All, Rich Schor. (Only one of his many many friends he had & still does have.)Read more

Our most sincere and heartfelt condolences to the the family. Ed was my parents' dear friend and beloved next-door neighbor for many years before he bought my Mom and Dad's house.
One snowy winter day when my Dad was in his late seventies, Ed pulled his snowmobile into the yard and hollered to my Dad,"Hop on Guy!" And off they sped down over Hogsback. Lenore came over and told my Mom, "Betty, if our husbands make it back alive, I'm gonna' kill Ed."
The Taylors were like a second family to Guy and Betty Vorse.
